The field trips funded by the Maury PTA and managed by the teachers and staff provide wonderful educational opportunities. Our children have seen the following on Maury class field trips: Jamestowne and Yorktown; The White House; U.S. Capital; The Kennday Center; DC's Decatur House; George Washington's Mount Vernon; Alexandria's Gadsby's Tavern, Ledbetter Apothocary, City Hall and Masonic Temple; Alexandria's Winkler Nature Preserve; and Alexandria's trash incinerator/power plant; and Alexandria's water treatment falicility.
Our child tells us he loves this school. We as parents love it, too. The teachers and the administration are great at communicating with families. We have noticed over time that the educators consistently deliver the message to each child that he or she is expected to do his or her best at all times. Of course, the staff support the children in this. Class sizes are small and the music and art teachers are exceptionally talented educators. On-site afters school enrichment programs are run by the PTA and provide excellent additional opportunities for learning.
We highly recommend this school. Our boy thrives there and the teachers he has had have been highly skillled. The administration focuses on all the right stuff and the PTA is resources beyond imagination.
Our child has spent five years at Maury School. Each year, he has developed skills beyond his grade level and his highly-skilled teachers have been dedicated. He has loved this school and his community of friends in Rosemont. We, as parents, think his experience at Maury has positioned him well for academic success going forward. We like to think we focus on academics in our family. Maury focuses on academics, too.
I cannot say enough great things about Maury Elementary. The faculty and staff are very effective leaders. The Rosemont Community provides an unbelievable level of positive support for the school. I have become friends with many people and the PTA's raises a large amount of money to support curriculum enrichment programs for all grades. Abobe all, Maury provides a nurturing and caring environment for our children.
Maury Elementary School meets our high standards. The faculty/staff display amazing skills daily. The community supports the school in amazing ways. The school systems provides abundant resources. There is a wonderful positive culture around the Maury Community as well. We are pround to send our children to this excellent school.
Our family moved to Alexandria from Europe where our children attended excellent schools. We have found that Maury Elementary provides our kids with a very high quality educational experience. The active Rosemont community is very engaged as well. It is an amazing convenience that all our children's school friends live within a short walk of the school and our home. We highly recommend this school.
We are first time parents and Rosemont residents. Two years ago as our oldest started Kindergarten, and we analyzed many school options (public and private) in detail before deciding to send him to Maury School. The school has been terrific for our child and we highly recommend it. The staff is caring and skilled. The community is incredibly involved. Our child does well academically and socially at Maury. W are very happy that we have become a Maury Family. We highly recommend this school to other families.
Our child has been at Maury for a number of years and achieves far beyond our expectations academically and musically. We credit the top teachers, the focused school administration and the supportive community for creating an excellent school.
